JUCO WR with OSU offer ready to 'clock in'

THE SEASON for College of the Canyons and WR Terence Scott will end this weekend but before it does, Scott will be looking to surpass the 1,000 yard mark for the second straight year. A sure handed wideout with six minutes of video available for viewing, Scott is ready to focus in on recruiting and finalize visit details. The 6-0, 170-pounder also says he's ready to "clock in", each and every day.

The book on Scott is that he has quick feet, soft hands and excellent acceleration after catching the ball. Line him up on a track and he may not be the faster burner out there, although his 40 time is listed at 4.38. But out on the field with pads on and the ball in his hands, he always seems to be the fastest guy out there and pulling away.

"Rest assured wherever I go, I will clock in," said Scott. "I treat this like a job and hopefully one day I can get paid but I will clock in wherever I go and try my best to be successful like I was at College of the Canyons."

Scott is averaging nearly 100 receiving yards a game, with 55 catches for 829 yards and 10 TDs. One of his individual goals was to get his second consecutive 1,000 yard season at COC and he'll have one more chance it in the regular season finale.

"As an individual I'm doing pretty good but it's all about the team -- we had an okay season but we'll play our last game this Saturday," said Scott.

Scott, who holds offers from Oregon State, South Carolina, Arizona State, Troy State and Kentucky, has been told his playing skills are only part of what he brings to the table.

"I'm not a cocky person, what I hear from my coaches is I'm a very coachable kid," said Scott. "All you have to do is tell me one time and I'll do it or fix it. I think as a player they like my excitement. I try to never come to practice upset and I try to never come to practice sad.

"One of my coaches here, (offensive coordinator) Don Fellows tells me I'm a coach on the field, I always want to know why we're doing something and I'll ask the coaches sometimes for the younger guys who might want to ask but don't."

SCOTT SAID important to his decision will be the quarterback situation at a school, the current players and the education a school provides. As he likes all the D-IA he's come into contact with, a school's coaching staff might not be as big a factor in his decision.

"A little bit of the coaching staff, but not so much as what the players are like since I'll be spending a lot of my time (with them), so just what they're all about," said Scott. "And then the school and program and how they can help me with education.

"I think we all get sidetracked with great athletes sometimes, but it boils down to the education."

SCOTT HAS NOT yet taken any official visits, primarily because College of the Canyons (4-5) plays on Saturdays as well, but with the COC season coming to an end, he plans on finalizing details on some trips shortly and ramping up his focus on recruiting in general.

A trip to South Carolina is tentatively scheduled for December, and Scott said he's also going to pick up the phone and touch base with ASU and try to set a date.

South Carolina, Arizona State and San Diego State are recruiting the hardest, he said. Pete Carroll spoke to him on the phone earlier this year, asking him what he would think about playing at USC but Scott said he hasn't heard from the Trojans in a while.

Scott, who has 3 to play 2, has over six minutes of highlight video available on his player page.
